The Best

Had injured some part on my left leg after pushing a cart up a driveway to my car from a market. My leg simply began to flop. Was taken to the, so called, #1 Ortho Hospital in LA where they had no clue, wrapped my leg and sent me on my way. Then, went to an Ortho Clinic a few days later when there was no improvement. They wrapped my foot and leg, did not diagnose and sent me on my way with pills. After no improvement or understanding, went to Dr. Lorman. He diagnosed me correctly after one simple test. It was basically, what he called, a "football injury", had been wrapped incorrectly, I had been given the wrong meds to reduce inflammation and he corrected all of that with one 10 min. visit. Extremely grateful to him. Yes, he seems abrupt, and this, I understand, concerns people. I had been forewarned and was not in the least bit, offended as I saw that he was caring concerned, efficient, just not "fluffy"... at all. A few years later I was, again, misdiagnosed as having arthritis in my knee joint. The doctor had showed me the x-ray and explained why he was certain that was the cause of my pain. Yet, he gave me trouble about getting a copy of my x-ray so I could get a second opinion. I finally got the x-ray as it was my right to pay for and receive a copy. I took it to Dr. Lorman, he had his staff take their own x-ray to compare. When all was done and we were in consultation, he asked who told me I had arthritis. I told him the doctor in my GP group to whom I was referred. He simply turned to me and said, "He be wrong." Very simple, to the point. Gave me the right meds, the right treatment and I was back to 100% within the week. I have gone to Dr. Lorman as my second (and so far, always correct) opinion as I was limited to whom I could see because of the insurance that I had at the time. I have had two broken ankles from an serious accident and because of him, I walk perfectly and with little to no pain after being told I would not walk without a limp for the rest of my life due to the severity of the injuries. Dr. Lorman offered much more hope and much better practices than the numerous physical therapists I had been to after my accident not to mention the orthopedist who handled my accident. She had a great smile, was friendly, but, offered zero hope and little help in bringing me to the best form I could be in following my accident. I am forever grateful to Dr. Lorman. He may not have that warm, inviting, cheerful manner like the other doctors, each of whom failed me, however, he was always spot on, and because of him, my ankles, tendons, knees and other injuries have all healed correctly because of his knowledge and care. I came to know of him, years ago, when he operated on a friend. It was supposed to be a simple procedure, but, once he saw that it was not going to be "typical" and needed the expert skills of someone who knew about the intricacies of the vascular system, he left surgery to call the another surgeon or she may have lost the use of that limb. Even my friend knew that it would/could have gone much differently had he truly been arrogant. Dr. Lorman always gave me realistic hope. He would not tell me I was going to be perfect, but, he would give me the heart to improve to the best of my ability, never saying, as others would say, "Well, that's as good as you're ever going to be." So very, very grateful....

I don't trust him. Went for second opinion.

No explanation of treatment. I think he thinks I just want pain drugs. Very dismissive.
